Efficient Monitoring of Calender Bearings
RENOLIT Group, a leading manufacturer of plastic films, was facing repeated rolling bearing failures on various calenders at the location in Worms. This resulted in unplanned downtimes with corresponding production stoppages and costs.Schaeffler was given the task of developing a monitoring concept to improve the overall availability of the facilities.The challenges included the very slow roller speeds, high housing temperatures (up to 150 °C) and the difficulty of access to the measurement points during production.
